Baked Goods Review: Singing the Praises of Yung Sing

yung sing.JPG Torontoist is torn. On the one hand, we know it is our job (and usually our pleasure) to guide our beloved readership to Toronto’s tastiest treats, and if those treats will fill you up for less than a buck, so much the better. But we really, really like Yung Sing’s almond cookies. They’re buttery and crumbly in that wonderful fireworks-in-your-mouth way that only certain cookies can pull off. And at 80 cents a pop, we’re not sure we want to share. Of course there are many other reasons to pay Yung Sing a visit. It’s one of the few remaining places in the city where you can get an honest, filling lunch for well under three dollars (we’re always done in by the beef patty, and have it on good authority that the curried beef is even better). And Yung Sing has other sweeties (all under a buck) worth a bite, too – we’re a sucker for a good egg or coconut tart. So I guess we’ll reconsider our initial hesitation and encourage you to give this Baldwin Street standby a visit. Just save an almond cookie for us, ok?
